Installs a tiny KMS server emulator on your PC for activation. Not ideal as KMS trips AV sometimes and deactivates, but it's the only choice for Office. Alternatively, just use MS Office online through your browser since it's completley free. As a last resort, you can try Open/Libre Office and set it to save as Office file formats only.>Where can I get the ISOs?>Where do I get Office?>Can I change edition post-install?
